EDM#78 Draw a souvenir
Graphite on Sketch
This is my daughter’s souvenir from Busch Gardens Amusement Park. It is rice with her name encased in a dolphin from one of the stands. We love going to Busch Gardens and we live close enough that we can go after supper for a couple of hours.
When she was picking out her beads to complete her necklace, I went on a covert operation just to see how the lady was able to write on that tiny little grain of rice. Then when I got home I grabbed my bag of rice and gave it a go, and I did it. This drawing also completes the book of drawings that I made her for Christmas.
Now, I can get a job at any amusment park, fair, kiosk writing on rice.

Lovely drawing to add to your daughter’s giftbook of sketches, sounds like you both had a great day at the garden Incredible that you can write on rice!
“Rice Writer”. That’s a new one but a special skill, I am sure. At first I thought that was a black and white photo. Really.
You did a really nice job on this. I bet your daughter will appreciate all of your sketches. If not now, someday!
Great drawing, the detail is so realistic.
Great drawing of so many little details. So how DID she write on that rice?
Linda, Lisa, Joanie and Barbara – Thank you for your comments, I really hope she will keep it, but I’m afraid she just may take my drawings out and use it for a photo album 🙂
Vicki-Happy Blog anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The girl is getting lots of compliments on her new tie dye gear.
Timaree- I don’t know what I was expecting, maybe magic? But all she did was press a grain of rice in a kneaded eraser and wrote on it with a perm. marker.
